If your mattress or box spring is relatively new or lightly worn consider giving it away, donating it, or re-purposing it into something new (pet bed, DIY craft, etc.).

Currently, mattresses and box springs do not have a recycling option in the local area. However, some options may exist in Michigan and can be located on the Bye Bye Mattress website.
